2017 is a great year for gamers as both stellar games and platforms are quite abundant currently. Just think about it, you can now play games in your home, on the go, or just about any place you can think of these days. The past days of being tied to game consoles and bulky cartridges in your home or a friends house are long gone. The game themselves have gotten better as well as both graphics and, to a lesser extent, game-play have largely taken great strides over the past several years to yield a plethora of world-wide blockbusters.

With the Internet and, the advent of smart phones, and mobile bandwidth becoming ever more accessible to the masses, gaming today is easier than it has ever been before. Players can now access an online game, an online casino, or play free games whenever and wherever they want with limited to no restrictions. Also helping has been not only improvements to consoles and computers, but their respective prices as well. It is now possible to buy a decent desktop computer for under $400 and a nice gaming PC for under $800. In the past, it would take at least $1,000 to get you an average PC that could last you a year or two. Consoles have also been on the rise with the PS4 and Xbox One consoles leading the way. On sale, you could pick up the base model for around $250. This is a great price considering that these consoles have online networks and stores along with great graphic capabilities right out of the box.

  1. Nice Article.. But to be honest… Some of the mobile Games that you mention are not popular now.. Maybe they put a large impact to the people but right now, they are not. CoC and Pokemon Go are not so popular like the few months they have just released… Welp.. I can say that all the PC games that you mentioned are all popular and good… Welp… Its really true that gaming really improves in the past few years until now, and even a new gaming device was already released .. The VR and in the next few years it will be pretty popular to all gamers i think… 😛

  3. The variety of platforms gamers can play games on are so far ranged. Hopefully, games will transfer to some new consoles. It’s remarkable how far technology got to in 20 years.
